Free Tools To Source Distinctive Vocabulary For Your Ads

When you read through classified ads, what is it about an
ad that catches your attention? Is it the headline,
symbols used, the ad copy itself or even a spelling

This article will explore some of the tools and resources
you can use to obtain distinctive vocabulary to increase
your ‘word repertoire’. Use these new words in your ads
to make them *STAND OUT* from the crowd!

When I say ‘different’ words, I mean unusual, out of the
ordinary, unique and distinctive vocabulary. The
internet is a world of its own and a lot of what we
learned at English in school regarding sentence
construction has gone right out the window! Granted, a
lot of us like to remain civilized and use the ‘correct’
form of sentence construction, but if you don’t, you can
get away with it without losing marks! You can use slang
words and you can abbreviate words to shorten the
character length of a line. Space is an important issue
when placing an ad and we’re forever being restricted
regarding the amount of space we are permitted to use.

Many ads are written in the present context where you are
attempting to tell the reader about something that you

You’ve all heard of a ‘thesaurus’ right? And no, it’s not
a dinosaur! A thesaurus is used to find other words for a
particular word, or synonyms. I personally use the
thesaurus that comes with MS Word and it can be accessed
by clicking on the Tools menu, then clicking on Language
and Thesaurus. Alternatively, you can use online thesauri
for free like the following:
